The writing journey continues to have bumps, gaps in the road ahead, mucky places I'm getting stuck, and a few mountaintop joys. My sister has been offered a contract by OakTara to publish not one but both her Sophie book and its sequel! An SCBWI friend has also landed an agent this winter and got a picture book contract from 4RV. It is fabulous to see that the system works for good writers. Now...to speed up my pace to join their company is the job of the months ahead!
